Confirmation email (for the agency as a whole) reads:

Thank you so much for your email. If you've sent us a query, we promise we’ll be reviewing each submission, but please understand that due to the volume of emails we receive, it is now our policy to respond only if we are interested in seeing more material. Furthermore, Rebecca Gardner and Courtney Gatewood are closed to queries.

If you are reaching out with an author request, rights inquiry, or other business matter, we will try to be in touch as soon as possible.

Thanks again for thinking of us. We sincerely wish you all the best.

Warm regards,

The Gernert Company

Odd question: When you all queried, did you address the letters to Mr. Parris-Lamb or to Mr. Lamb? I'm guessing it's the former but I want to be sure.

On 12/19/13, I queried Chris with Chain Reaction. Last month I gave him a nudge. As of Monday, it's closed/no response. I"ll try Seth next month with CR.
